Interesting variation on a rom-com story line
Unlike several other reviewers, I was not familiar with many of the actors in the cast, I do, of course, know who Robert deNiro is! I was basically looking for a movie to fill a few empty hours on a holiday weekend. I really enjoyed the film. The screenplay is upbeat in a kooky sort of way, the acting performances are all fine, the setting of a middle class neighborhood seems "real" in contrast to too many glitzy, unbelievable sets where people who struggle economically nevertheless live in more than comfortable surroundings.
Fairly early on, in the dinner party scene, the audience begins to hope they are right about where this is going, and watching things play out along the way is a lot of fun.
I recommend it!
